Dave, you made this Brown-headed Cowbird appealing! I find that I chase them off from my little feeder that I have for the finches, as they are too large and dump a lot of the food, and they come in a flock as well. I will have to look at them a little differently. Love his feathers ruffled, and the colors that are showing in them.

I like the pose and the detail and color really come through. Good perch and background as well.

I like everything about this image. Very well done.

A very nice capture of this bird, Dave! I like the fluffed feathers and the interesting colors. Good detail throughout also.

I really like the pose and composition, Dave. Excellent detail as well.
